Is the Martin Schulz quote correct?..
Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament since 2012, has been quoted as saying: “The British have violated the rules. It is not the EU philosophy that the crowd can decide its fate“.
Two images are shown of him, shown below, one in German and the other in English.
The first image and original quote was shown a German satirical article from Contra Magazin.
Google Translation: “It is unacceptable that the mob may decide on the political future of the European Union, especially in situations where the existence of such a threat is present.”
It was followed up in various other sources, but NOT in any major newspaper, with the English version shown below.
Some people are feeling it is actually true. But, with the smaller print: “Warning Satire!” at the end of the original article, it seems not.
Satire. “the use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues”
Be wary about what you read on the Internet !!!
